No! Nothing like that! Actuall the thing you read is old. Link still are in control of Nardil but it is now back on the PBS- this means your doctor doesn't need to apply for any approval.

Keep in mind, the chemist you go to may have to get it from Link, as not many chemists keep in stock the MAOIs.

So order it as soon as you get the script.


It is around $3.80 if you have a healthcare card and around $100 if you don't. You get 100 pills in the bottle.

Dude, I am THE Australian champion of Nardil! Its obvious you havent been on this site long!

Nardil is more serotonergic and effects GABA whereas Parnate doesn't. I believe Nardil is a better drug for most, but not all, people.

Ignore that. Nardil has a much better track record.

I hope I have helped. Nardil is an amazing drug. Just cruise the web and see all the success stories. And the Nardil from Link is fine...
